Elevating Security for Digital Trust & Risk Management​

DIGITAL FORUM | Finland | September 22, 2020



The security industry has passed an inflection point. Whether organizations realize it or not, this inflection point has put security at the heart of everything. Security operational excellence is table stakes, a prerequisite for every organization to function securely, efficiently, and effectively. Risk management goes hand in hand with that, quantifying security measures in the context of the business to demonstrate the business value of security.

IDC views the achievement of lasting "digital trust" as the apex — the realization of full alignment between security and business, providing a fundamental basis of trust that connects the organization, employees, partners, and customers.

IDC’s Security Roadshow 2020 will provide a review of industry trends and guidance to security professionals and the key factors to consider in their strategic planning when allocating resources as part of shrinking the organization's attack surface, reducing security and privacy risk, and developing efficiencies in security technology.

Join IDC's leading European security research team to explore how security is now a strategic business imperative and how technology solutions are ensuring security while enabling support for organizations' digital transformation programs.

Key Topics


Security Operational Excellence

Enterprises need to integrate for effectiveness, automate for efficiency, build "security by design" into company culture, and outsource to specialists who can fill in any gaps around scale and capability.


Risk Management

Risk bridges the gap between security and business through quantification and context. A risk-driven security strategy will have greater impact and justify security investment.


Security Governance

New technologies arriving on the wave of digital transformation (DX) bring uncertainty from the control perspective. Setting a governance model that links business objectives and security goals is key to sustaining business performance.


Digital Trust

Trust is the outcome of full alignment between security and business throughout the organization. Trust applies to governance, transactions, and supply ecosystems, creating a positive cycle of enhancing corporate and industry security practices.


Building Resilience

Every day that an organization has systems compromised or suffers downtime can cost millions of dollars. Building resilience into the infrastructure is crucial for maintaining operations despite attacks or outages, and thus minimizing risk.


AI, ML, and Security Automation

Complexity of threats and alert volumes are major challenges for security teams. Harnessing ML and AI for security automation empowers analysts to provide security value to the business while building security seamlessly into enterprise processes.

Enabling the Autonomous SOC

Alex Ahlberg

Regional Sales Manager - Cortex, Palo Alto Networks

Security Operations Centers (SOCs) are characterized by chaos, struggling with siloed tools, manual processes, and reliant on the old premise of high-volume, low-fidelity rule-based correlation for everything from detection to investigation. The tightly integrated offering of Cortex XDR and XSAOR transforms SOCs from cost centers to business enablers, providing unified prevention, analytics-based detection across data sources, centralized case management, one-click attack investigation, and automated playbook-driven response that removes reduces MTTD and MTTR for every security use case. As your lean SOC transforms to an automated proactive model, so do your analysts, spending less time on manual reactive processes and more on hunting for unknown threats and transferring knowledge gained into future improvement.
